Matthew regularly guest-conducts the Cleveland Orchestra, Finnish Radio Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Wiener Symphoniker, Iceland Symphony, Toronto Symphony and Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra. Recent highlights include Mahler’s “Resurrection” Symphony in Toronto, the US premiere of James MacMillan’s Fourth Symphony with Pittsburgh Symphony and his Chicago Symphony debut.

He will be our 12th chief conductor and the third non-Finn in this position. I am sure Matthew and our musicians will create unforgettable musical experiences for our audiences,” says Eija Oravuo, General Manager, Tampere Philharmonic.

With a background in period-performance, Matthew was one of the first to guest-conduct Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s Concentus Musicus Wien. His discography includes Bach’s Harpsichord Concertos, the premiere recording of Handel’s Parnasso in Festa and Bach’s Easter and Ascension Oratorios.

Comprising 97 musicians, the Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Scandinavia’s foremost symphony orchestras. Founded in 1930 and maintained since 1947 by the City of Tampere, the orchestra is based at Tampere Hall, the largest conference and concert centre in the Nordic countries. tamperefilharmonia.fi/en
